Our day starts at downtown Vallarta where we will all ride in the car 35 minutes south along the ocean to the picturesque beach town of Boca de Tomatlan. This charming fishing village is where we start our breathtakingly beautiful and challenging hike. Crossing the emerald waters of the Tomatlan River we make our way up the hillsides and soon lose sight of the ocean. Climbing higher and higher through some of the thickest jungle foliage in the bay, we will see exotic butterflies, crabs, reptiles, and a variety of native birds in a multitude of colors. This hike hugs the coastline, so there is always an incredible view to be had. Navigating steep stone steps, roots, and rocks can be tough, but the secluded remote beaches along the way make a nice pit stop for water and a breather. After descending the hilliest part of the hike, you will find yourself on the vast sweeping sands of Playa Los Caballos, or Horse Beach.
